Video: Brawl with cop at Florida DMV ends in woman's arrest

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. -- A woman was arrested at a South Florida DMV office after a furious confrontation with a police officer that was captured on videotape and posted to Facebook, reports CBS Miami.

On Friday, a woman's frustration at the Dept. of Motor Vehicles in Deerfield Beach led to violence when an officer showed up to escort her out -- after she'd been asked to leave. In the video, the woman -- later identified as Eleanore Stern -- was asked to listen to the officer, who it appears, may have initiated physical contact withe the woman.

The confrontation quickly escalates -- and the woman appears to kick the officer in the groin, which leads to a bit of "wrestling match" between the two.
